Abstract

Blue-green algae (cyanobacteriae) possess specialized antenna organelles, the phycobilisomes, to collect light of a broad spectrum and to transfer its energy very efficiently towards the chlorophyll containing photosynthetic reaction centers. Their major constituents are phycobiliproteins, intensely coloured protein-pigment complexes, composed of polypeptide chains covalently linked with open-chain tetrapyrroles (bilins).
